  6. Today is the 4th day of National School Counseling Week. Our focus for the day is “kindness and positivity.” Our counselors focus on kindness and building a positive climate at RMS. The note in your locker the first day of school, the quotes and bulletin boards in the hallway, coordinating the Regal Ram and PIE Award ceremonies are all things our counselors do to build a positive school community. We challenge all students and staff today to do at least one thing, to show kindness to someone else before the end of the school day. It might be reaching out to someone who looks like they’re having a rough day, standing up for someone, or just smiling and saying “Hello” to people. A little bit of kindness by a large group of people can make a huge difference.

  7. Today's RAMS Quote:  Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. The best thing to do is to be kind.

  4. Today is the 2nd day of National School Counseling Week.  Did you know that your attitude can help you take on the challenges and obstacles you face in your daily life? We all know people who are sometimes grumpy. Or negative. They find it easier to complain about their obstacles than to work through them. Take a moment to think about your attitude. Do you tend to approach things positively or negatively? Do you reach out to others for support?  When you start to see yourself looking at the negative side, take time and refocus. You will see in the halls the mindfulness activities that you learned earlier this year in our SEL lesson. If you find yourself struggling with negative thinking try one of the techniques, or reach out to your counselor.

  5. Group yearbook pictures tomorrow - FCCLA Members will have their group picture taken for the yearbook tomorrow.  All members should bring their FCCLA jacket to wear for the group picture.
